A TRUCK driver killed a six-year-old girl and her four-year-old brother when he veered onto a mini golf course where the siblings were playing, cops say.
Addie and Baylor Kirchgessner were playing together with their parents watching on when a truck, driven by a man identified by police as Scott Donaldson, slammed into the siblings at a Florida park on Friday.
A GoFundMe created in the two toddlers' name called the crash a "tragic accident" that "took the perfect, little lives of Addie and Baylor Kirchgessner."
"Energetic, fun loving, and huge personalities, these tiny people touched the lives of so many," the GoFundMe continued.
The funds raised will go to the siblings' parents to help with travel, funeral and medical expenses "and whatever else may pop up during this terrible time."
The fund has already raised $113,000 of its $120,000 goal.
Authorities say the two Kentucky tots were playing at the Coconut Creek Family Fun Park in Panama City Beach, Florida on Friday afternoon when Donaldson drove his 2007 Chevrolet Silverado into the two children.
Donaldson was driving on the westbound lane of Front Beach Road when he turned the vehicle off-course and onto the Coconut Creek property.
Baylor died instantly upon impact. His sister was rushed to the hospital but could not be saved.
The crash is still under investigation.
